One Of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance VR Missions Is A Dwarf Gekko Platformer

By Spencer . March 7, 2013 . 11:02pm

Platinum Games made 30 VR missions for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance exclusive for the PlayStation 3 version. These missions are different from Raiden’s usual lightning bolt action. One mission has players sneak through a level as a Dwarf Gekko and it plays kind of like a platformer. Raiden appears to play sniper in another stage and there’s a level where you have to fight barehanded.


Players can also grab the Hebi damashii (Snake Spirit), a wooden sword that will allow players to complete the game without killing cyborgs.


The VR missions and Hebi damashii sword will be released for free on March 14 and will be free until April 1.

        • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

          No wonder she tells Raiden “This is a not smoking flight!” She believed he had the Soul Snake sword.

    Wait… the 30 DLC VR missions will be FREE (for almost 3 weeks)? That’s awesome.

    • Aoshi00

      yeah, nice they’re free, would be getting those next week.. even though it’s free DLC, you still have to buy it w/ BP in the game, like the Gray Fox costume :(… the Lollipop Chainsaw costumes which were supposed to be pre-order bonus DLC as well, can’t use them till you collect enough money to buy in the game..

  • Bruno Diaz
